"At last, a book that helps people make sense of multiple mystifying symptoms and offers a road map to proper diagnosis and the most effective treatments...a brilliant empowerment manual."

Are you tired? Achy? Depressed? Overweight? 
 

You could be suffering from an autoimmune disease.

Autoimmune disease is the third major category of illness in the U.S., yet very little is known about these many serious and chronic immune conditions. If you're one of the 50+ million Americans suffering from an autoimmune disease --whether it's lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, thyroid disease, or Crohn's disease -- there's a good chance you'll develop another. This book can help.  

 

A complete guide to understanding the mysterious and often difficult-to-pinpoint autoimmune diseases--and the keys to diagnosis, treatment, and recovery.

An estimated fifty million people suffer from symptoms including fatigue, joint pains, depression, or heart palpitations — signs that the immune system has turned on itself, causing conditions such as thyroid disease, hepatitis, or multiple sclerosis. And while doctors may prescribe treatments to relieve these surface ailments, when asked about the life-long health implications of an autoimmune condition, they often just shrug their shoulders. 

 

Much like cancer, having one autoimmune disease puts you at high risk for developing another, and understanding the underlying immune process can reverse a patients approach to the dysfunction--for Shomon, it changed the way she ate, the vitamins and supplements she took, and the types of doctors she visited. 

 

Living Well with Autoimmune Disease is the first book that goes beyond the conventional treatments to include information about holistic and natural ways to treat the underlying causes of autoimmune dysfunction, not just the symptoms. It contains first-person accounts from doctors, patients, and holistic practitioners, as well as checklists, quizzes, and a recovery plan. 

 

You'll also get detailed information about:

 

  • The most common autoimmune conditions

  • The factors that can lead to autoimmune disease

  • Interpreting your symptoms

  • Tests and treatments

  • Finding the right doctor

 

Living with autoimmune disease can be frightening and frustrating, but it doesn't have to be. This valuable guide helps you understand what may be causing your autoimmune condition, and helps you take the healthy steps toward correcting it.
